Shoaib Akhtar, who is currently playing for the Asia Lions in the Legends League Cricket, is confident that the Men In Green will give a repeat of the 2021 game, and will emerge triumphant over India. He asserted that Pakistan are a better outfit than their arch-rivals.

“We will beat India again in Melbourne. Pakistan is a better side than India in T20 cricket.” Akhtar was quoted as saying by Times Now.

The ‘Rawalpindi Express’ opined that the Indian team gets bogged down under the pressure of media and fans. He also reckoned that because of such high expectations, the Indian players are weighted down and that is “normal” for them to lose against Pakistan.

“It’s the Indian media that make unnecessary pressure on their team whenever we have the clash of both countries in cricket, it’s normal for India to lose,” Akhtar added, explaining his prediction.

While India crashed out from the group stage in the 2021 T20 World Cup, Pakistan won all their 5 group games but lost the semi-final to Australia.
